The introduction of patient’s electronic health care records results in a danger to their protection as resentful exercises would make genuine mischief the individuals who have legitimately or in a round about way identified with their information. Current methodologies to feasibly supervise and guarantee electronic health care records have been ended up being lacking. In our thesis, we propose the electronic healthcare record share which tends to the issue in sharing the medicinal information among the restorative huge information caretakers in a trustless condition. The framework is based on enigma and gives information surveying, scalability, decentralization and access control for shared electronic healthcare records in cloud archives among enormous information. Among information advances and sharing from one substance to the next, it invigilates the activities performed on the framework. The structure utilizes secret contracts and access control system to follow the conduct of the information and deny access to offending substances on the identification of infringement of authorizations on information. Our proposed idea is the present front line answers for information sharing among cloud specialist. Information surveying, versatility and access control while imparting medicinal services information to substances, for example, research and therapeutic foundations with insignificant hazard to information security can be accomplished by actualizing our proposed idea.
